Just based on that one page, it seems ok but a bit basic.
A bit unclear to me why they need to call this satanism and how this really relates to the abrahamic faiths and their texts (again, just based on that page).

So far as critique goes, it gives me the sense that it would be susceptible to scientism, and the right-wing tendencies of new atheism.

And it also gives me a sense of resentment built upon resentment.

That said, not only have Democrats not actually run on an explicitly anti-fascist agenda or explained how they would suppress the current fascist insurgency, they have actively promoted fascism overseas. In the Ukraine the US under Obama sponsored neo-Nazi parties that now dominate the government there. Fascists are actually in state power thanks to a Democrat.

The same is true for the Islamist extremists he backed in Syria, as well as the reactionary coup regime he backed in Guatemala. Yes, Trump’s footsie with domestic Nazis is outrageous and wrong, but outsourcing the fascist problem to other countries and calling yourself pure is a means of protecting your own neck at someone else’s expense. It’s not harm reduction, it’s harm redistribution away from the imperial center and towards people we’ve already screwed over.

The idea that trans women are not women just by indentification and that they only are when society treats them like one is what is killing me in this piece

assimilationist trash

For lack of a better word, this comes off a bit conspiracy-y and reads like it was written by a capitalist

I think that's also because it has only individual solutions, with no noticeable concern for solidarity or mutual aid
